Middlename
Emotion, is my middle name
I lay in bed and listen to the rain
Put happy thoughts in to my head
But I find instead the hurting words you said

Why won't you believe me
When I tell you the things that I see?
And I'll still see you tomorrow, at the show

It's been a long winded, long time
I wish I'd never met you
I wish I could forget you
And what you said
You're directing your complaints to me
I should walk away, I could easily
Never hear a word you say

I'm not your robot or your slave
I won't behave, I'm not your toy
Go on go bury me with self righteousness
I confess, I'm just a boyback to top
My Mom Still Cleans My Room
I'm not always nice, not always mean
My room has never been seen clean
The way I feel is not always how I seem

The thoughts that form inside my brain
Don't always seem to entertain
'cause when I tell my company
They think there's something wrong with me

You don't know me like you think you do
You don't understand me and it's true

I'm getting older day by day
Ain't got time to get to everything
Hold on tight, enjoy the ride
Life is short, so live it wisely

I'm not always sick, but often tired
Sometimes I'm having fun or wired
I don't have someone to call my own

I'm not full of all the answers
I guess that I'm an o.k. dancer
I just want to be left aloneback to top
Do Your Feet Hurt
Can I call you sweetheart or even baby doll?
If I had your number, you'd be getting a phone call
Can I leave you a message on your machine?
Letting you know that you're the bomb
And you blew up on me

Are you anxious to see me
After your next class?
Do you care when I tell you
Step around that broken glass?

Can I see you after you get out of school?
I won't even mind if you treat me cruel
Take a ride on my vespa, I'll take you home
I'll climb up to your window and read you a poem

I know that you believe in the one true God above
And that's why you're waiting
For your one and only love
Do your feet hurt? did you fall from heaven?
'cause you've been running through
My mind all day
My mind don't mind

I don't know what to say or do
I can't eat when I'm with you
Goodnight sweetheart I gotta go
And you won't come to my next show?back to top
Sometimes You Have To Ask Yourself
Never quite just knew how to get it through
The utilitarian sloganeerian minds
And it's time to stand up and redefine the lines
Right now

Compartmentalizing, isn't realizing
Because it's not affecting change in the real world
So get on with your life and get over mine
There's only one world and there's many different tastes

So enjoy, don't employ your state
Common goals, communicate to contemplate
The way things are and why
Don't pawn the status quo problems off on the other guy

Your a celebrity in your own world
Catch phrases only catching cobb webs
Spiritualized capital gain and wealth
Isn't the means to the end, isn't the end itself

Manifest individually
Manifest a sense of reality
Because it's non exclusive
Don't be so elusively blind
Things are never what they seem
You don't know what you'll find
Right now!back to top
The Wonder Years
I don't understand what's going on in my life these days
Everything upside down turned around
Won't waste my life, no way
And I don't know why

I can't see clearly?
I can't think 'cause it's too early
So many doubts frequent my mind all the time

Our lives in general are one in the same,
But there's no variations
Our lives in general are on in the same
But there's no difference of opinion

In my younger years, I used to be so free
But I don't know what's happening to me
We all know by now that time's the enemy
It controls us, tells us where to be

Don't know, don't care
If you need me, I'll be right hereback to top
Move To Bremerton
When I meet a special girl
She always lives somewhere else in the world
I don't want to call her on the phone
I wanna talk to her when I'm at home

Move to bremerton - we'll hang out
Move to bremerton - cause you wanna
Move to bremerton - will you be mine?
(move to bremerton til' the end of time)

I'll change the street signs you drive down
So you end up in my town
I'll re-draw the maps all one by one
So they all lead to bremerton

Drop out of school and run away
Quit your job, you got a place to stay
Pack your bags and hitch a ride
Bremerton's a good place to reside

If you owned a brain and use it too
You gotta know that I'd have a crush on you
I'm a sucker for a level headed girl with a pretty smile
She gotz to have ideas, yeah, and she gotz to have styleback to top
New York To Nowhere
Going nowhere fast, watching cars go past
Why won't the snow melt faster?
This trip is a disaster
16 hour drive, just played in some dive
New york to nowhere, we're never gonna get there

A million miles away from everyone I know
Stuck here night and day with 5 more days to goback to top
Andrea
Meeting you was just so unexpected
I guess I was scared of being rejected

Since you were so nice
I wouldn't think twice
I'd give it all away for one more day with you

If ever there was a girl to be engaged to
That amazing girl would have to be you

Before we hung out
Don't know how I lived without
Your beautiful face - like god's amazing grace

Andrea, I say your name and all I can do is
Think about the way you smiled
And kinda sorta held my hand
Went out for coffee in what must have been the smallest town in kentucky

Andrea, we walked together
Down the dirt road by the bridge
That we sat by each other
Talked about a few things
You looked at me I looked at you
Before you know, it's time to go!back to top
Your Problem My Emergency
MXPX
YOUR PROBLEM MY EMERGENCY


No one here is innocent as far as I can see.
It happens each and everyday condoned by you and me.
Is if right to take the very best only for yourself.
Thinking of no other one only of yourself.

I was lost then I was found
But my selfishness still brings me down
was blind but now I see
This selfishness in front of me

Now I'm thinking about doing the right thing everday
It's really hard to do but it's easy to say
By myself I fall but in him I stand
Everytime I doubt he shows me againback to top
Chick Magnet
(people talking)
Well he's a chick magnet, if ya know what I mean
The way the girlies just go to him
Well ya should've seen
The guy yeah, he's got style and it's plain to see
Smooth shoes and cool tattoos
Hair pomped as tight as can be

He ain't got a girlfriend
No one to sing this song to
He's gotta settle down
If he meets that special girl soon

He knows just what to do
When it comes to the girls
He writes them poetry
And he picks them flowers
He knows just what to say
When it comes to the ladies
Knows how to make a girl smile
How to drive a girl crazyback to top
Today Is In My Way
It breaks my heart it makes me sad
To think of all the times we had
You made me laugh and you make me cry
And all that I can do is sigh, and wonder why
How will I get through tomorrow
If I can't make it through today?
How will I get through tomorrow,
When today is in my way?
Today is in my way
What's done is done and in the past
Good things come and go so fast
You lokked up at me and said goodbye
All that I could do was sigh and wonder why
I deserve all that I get
Serves me right I will admit
And today just won't go awayback to top
Sorry So Sorry
I should have stayed in bed today
I couldn't think of a positive thing to say
My friends all hate me now
I was selfish and realize now
I have it a little time
I thought about it a while
Ask to forgive and forget
Crack a joke and a smile
It's hard to say you're sorry
When you know that you were wrong
The weight of hurting words
We often carry on
The annoying things I don't mind so much anymore
I've learned to tolerate the annoying four
I won't let the sun go down
When I've made a mistake
I'd make right what I've wronged
And give more that I takeback to top
Doing Time
I remember times I had
Some were happy, some were sad
Memories me and my partners in crime
Throwing up a thousand times
I got through it, I feel fine
I went to school and did my time
In a sense I'm out, in a sense I'm free
To be what I wanna be
Fun was cartoons saturdays
Fun was staying up past eight
Lame was tring to fit in
Lame was the wrong crowd let me it
You gotta stick together
With who you are and who you know
You gotta remember
Where you've been and where you wanna go
I never did homework after school
Did all the things I thought were cool
Went out every friday night
I still do and I'm alright.back to top
Correct Me If I'm Wrong
Did you forget what's important in you life?
Somewhat confused, everthing is going wrong
Do you regret the decisions that you've made?
I don't expect a second chance to come along
You already found the book
With all the answers to all your questions
So take a closer look
You're in the turn land and I'm the intersection
Did you forget when you wakled out of my room
To turn off the light and say goodnight
Your answer's coming soon
I will admit in the end I'll be o.k.
I think it safe to say, you don't know
If we're better off this way
Please don't forget how to laugh out loud
And be proud of yourself
I know you'll do what's right for youback to top
Cristalena
Cristalena, ya she's so cool
Crsitalena, she's out of control
Half the time she don't know where she's at
Cristalena don't know much about that
But you know, and I know cristalena
But you know, and I know where I've seen her
Cristalena, she's in her own world
She's always happy as a littly girl
Cristalen's nice unless she's annoyed
Cristalena happens to like boys - but not me
Cristalena, where'd you go?
Don't even know where you've been
Cristalena, won't you stay?
Please don't go away, won't you be my friend?back to top
Destroyed By You
Can someone tell me why I'm feeling this way?
Can someone tell me why this world is so grey?
It's never just black and white
So much went on tonight
Was I wrong or was I right?
You think the whole world revolves around around your head
You are ignoring me, you haven't heard a word I've just said
Why can't I just pull myself together?
What's done is done, never say never
Always look for good in the bad
Learn from the mistakes that I have had
I re and re-learn
To let it go
Talk is easy
But it's so hard to showback to top
Southbound
It's all the same
Same old town witha different name
That's fine by me
There's only one place that I wanna be
Southbound on i-5
And windows down and music on the stereo
I'm drivin' and I'm dreamin'
There's no place I'd rather go
Staring at white lines on the side of the road
(playing every night with the occasional fight)
Been on the road awhile
I gotto get back to a place with style
Hang out, havin' fun
I gotta get back to the beach in the sunback to top
